Thread: Somebody ID this Round

    Default Somebody ID this Round

    I had a buddy relocate and he left me a box of ammo. Included in the mix was four unmarked boxes with 20 rounds each that look like the pics below. I never saw him with a gun at the range or in the woods that would use this round.

    Plant 22 in Romania, but unknown caliber. Dimensions? Reference to known cartridge for size?

    30-06 on the left and 300 win mag on the right. The cartridge base is the same diameter as 30-06

    My best guess is 8mm Mauser, but without knowing bullet diameter, its only a guess.

    You don't really have to measure now, I'll bet it's 7.92 mm

    In the pic in the link is exactly the same lot of ammo as yours.
